Kansans, looking at a map of KS on mapquest, there's a road going north-south from


Wakeeney to Ness City on I-70, just west of Hays.

Is that road--and not just that one but other ones similar to it--unpaved?

Thanks!

3. I believe you're referring to US-283?

Smoky Valley
Length of route: About 60 miles
Bicycle friendliness of route: Good. US-283 has a narrow paved shoulder, though K-4 and K-147 do not, but traffic on each road is generally light at well under 1000 vehicles per day.
